This mod can auto convert it to:

Since the following words are used in HTML tags I would avoid them as keywords:
style, div, class, pre, href, img, html, meta, name, rel, nofollow, and link.
I would also avoid any single letter or two letter keywords since they could easily be used accidentally in places you weren't intending.
